began, young people out for a good time have
found an added zest in breaking some convenient
rule not regularly enforced; another, that the actual
cases of immorality are small compared to the num-
ber of rule-forgetters; still another, and most ii-
portant of all, that rules broken innumerable times
without any apparent attempt to punish individual
cases or any authority willing or able to take the
responsibility of such punishment, soon lose their
force as compellors of conduct.
Why, instead of cutting off Michigan's oldest
and greatest social event and hurting the good
name of Michigan in newspapers the country wide,
could not the committee have considered human na-
ture and put the thing squarely up to us as a ques-
tion of honor, saying: "You have, for various
reasons, failed to realize that obedience to these
rules is a matter of honor; you will be given your
chance to keep or lose the Hop, and if you fail
there will be no Hop in 1922 ?"
In the future, the accentuation of the honor side
of the Hop, plus the setting up of a student and
faculty committee which will be no shadow, but
deal directly with violations, is feasible and shoul(
by all means he adopted as the basis for a return of
THE CHINESE SPOTLIGHT
The pleasure-seeker and the humanitarian alike
wil be reached by the appeal of tomorrow night's
entertainment in Hill auditorium; for, no matter
how important the phase of aid to the starving
Chinese may appear in the reasons for the produc-
tion, the show will stand on its own feet and would
find a very large audience even if placed purely on
its merits as a money's-worth amusement.
The Chinese Spotlight is a vaudeville production
whose cast has been drawn from the best stage tal-
ent of Michigan, both Oriental and American. A
musical act which will reveal the origin of jazz is
promised, while to the "fussers" upon the campus,
the moon mandolin should offer seductive attrac-
tion. This act, together with four other equally
amusing ones, forms a program which the partici-
pators have labored ha'rd to oring up to a high
standard of art. For this reason the lovers of
pleasure for pleasure's sake will find it to their best
interests to be present at the Zpotlight.
The ears of any to whom the pleasure side offers
insufficient inducement can certainly not remain
deaf to the appeal sent forth by the millions of
starving Chinese whose suffering is aggravated by
the crowded living conditions of their country. It
is for the aleviation of their hunger that the pro-
ceeds derived from the performance will be used.
It is for the preservation of life that the profits
Whether from a love of pleasure or because of
the knowledge that the small sum which is required
for the purchase of a ticket will help keep some un-
fortunate free from hunger, or both, Michigan
should fill every seat in the auditorium tomorrow

HONOR AND THE HOP
Can honor be considered apart from time and
place, in as abstract a way as a geometric formula?
The Committee on Student Affairs announced
Saturday in its indictmert of violators of Hop rules
in the past, that it "views their conduct as dishon-
orable and demoralizing to the student body." The
assumption set up against the morals and the honor
of Michigan students was severe enough in itself,
even considering the careful exceptions made of
members of Hop committees and law-abiding Hop-
pers; but when news dispatches had, as is their
wont, forgotten the exceptions and added embell-
ishments of their own, the coast-to-coast opinion of
Michigan took a big drop in the ticker. Was the
committee's statement justified?
Doubtless there are many men who, trained and
bred to listen to the voice of conscience in every
act, really are face to face with the question of
honor or dishonor in everything they do, and guide
their lives accordingly. We may assume that the
members of the Hop committee are such men, or at
least that they hold others to be; for not once, in the
course of their argument do they go deeper than
the bare outer facts and try to guide the remedy
by knowing the cause. The statement that rules
were broken was true, but the students, who live
close to the reasons underlying the unfortunate
events which caused the discontinuation of the Hop
were rightly surprised and disappointed that no
consideration had apparently been given these rea-
sons in the solution of the problem.
Honor doubtless ought to be a thing apart, its
dictates obeyed by all on pain of punishment; just
as human boings doubtless ought to be perfect. But
the first is no more possible in this world than the
second. One and all, with the exception of the
crass materialist, the criminal and the imbecile, we
have come to recognize that honor must prevail as
the rule of our dealings. But every day, either be-
cause we are thick-skinned and through our im-
perfections cannot see that a thing is a question of
honor: or because desires flood over and drown the
voice that warns of wrong; or because timeworn
ideas and rluts of thinking have made us so mud-
dle-headed that we can rush into dishonor without
losing the least self-respect, we break our creed and
can only be broiight to time by having the matter
dut squarely and fairly up to us. Then, because we
drecognize and obey the dictates of right conduct
as coneets we take stock of ourselves and change
our mode of action.
But the Hop committee, seeing things not as
they are but as they would be if perfect. never gave
us this chance. Assuming that all violations of the
Hop rules were direct matters of dishonor, they
passed clean over the essential fact that in most
cases no such broad indictment would be justified
"I never heard that you couldn't smoke cigarettes
in the booths," is one comment that is frequently
heard -- and the fact that a great many neither
read the rules of the Hop nor realized their sig-
nificance is just one of many facts not properly
considered. 'Another is the truth that, since time

Together they sat on the mossy bank of the lit-
tle rivulet. From afar came the sweet guttural
croaking of the crocuses; they watched the little
bullrushes rushing wildly by on their way to the
sea. Spring had indeed come.
Yet as they sat there, side by side, he made no
move to slyly place his arm about her waist. Occa-
sionally she would look up at him, and allow those
beautiful, trusting eyes to rest on him. An un-
quenchable flame of love burned in their depths ;
even he was not blind to it.
He wondered if she, too, had guessed his secret;
was aware of the fact that he loved her also. He
looked at her and at the look he saw mirrored in her
eyes, he held out both his arms. Withra bound she
was in' them. Almost roughly he crushed her to
his bosom. Few things are more beautiful in life
than the love of a true man for a good dog.
